Length: 6m 8s

I lost the money. It was true. But it would not be the last time I ever made a mistake. And when the money was returned, oh -- the rejoicing I had in my heart. Plus, the fact that I'd get to keep my job. Take this woman in Luke 15, who had 10 coins, she lost one and went on a frantic search. And when she found it, she rejoiced with all of her friends! In this same way, Jesus rejoices as do the angels in heaven when one person turns from sin. Jesus longs to find each of us, despite our mishaps, mistakes and blunders! …

Drusilla Rejects the Message?

Length: 5m 23s
